I was saddened to hear that Breanna Pena had passed away. 

Breanna was the 2011 benefactor of London's Run.  Here is her bio from the London's Run website:

"13 year old Breanna Pena discovered a lump and what she thought was a bruised bug bite on her breast. Shortly after these appeared other small bruise-like spots began appearing across her torso. After many lab tests as well as breast and bone marrow biopsies she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.  Breanna was extremely blessed that she discovered the lumps and bruising immediately. She was able to begin treatments when her blood counts were still very high because we had caught it so quickly. She is facing chemotherapy treatments that require her to be hospitalized for 5-8 weeks at a time. She will do this process 3 times, with only 1-2 weeks at home between cycles, to hopefully completely eradicate the cancer cells from her body and bone marrow. Following that, she will have a bone marrow transplant. We are currently searching for the donor because none of her siblings matched.  Breanna is an amazing young woman. She is in all advanced classes at school and has maintained straight A's for her entire school education. She is acknowledged in National Yearbooks like Who's Who Among American Middle School Students and United States Academic Achievement Academy. She has been involved with Student Council for 4 years straight at 3 different schools. She was a cheerleader for the Combs Cougars during her 7th grade year. She is adventurous, funny, confident, intelligent lady. She enjoys reading, swimming, sports, dance, cheer, writing, drawing/sketching, and roller coasters."

Breanna Nicole Pena lost her battle with leukemia and passed away peacefully in her sleep on February 11th, 2011.
